A view from underneath

The traffic through the city wasn’t too bad today so I pulled off a few miles after crossing the Golden Gate at the Mill Valley exit and did a few minutes of exploring. I found this view of Mt. Tamalpais looking north under the overpass on the Mill Valley-Sausalito Path. The cyclist probably sees it all the time in all different conditions, but this is what it looked like today.

Riding the ferry to the next dock

I’ve got two very busy weeks ahead of me–commute… work … commute…, plus several band gigs (like work, but more fun). Then I’m on vacation. Until then the blog posts will mostly be a grab bag of shots. This one is a grab from a recent bag.

Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm. (Have I insinuated enough that this is a GREAT walk-around lens for a Canon APS-C camera!!)

Man sized perspective

I’m enjoying an increasingly rare weekend off, so I dipped back into the archive for today’s post. I took this shot back in early June during a commute stop.

Black and white conversion: Nik Silver Efex Pro (version 1).

Note: I indicate the version of Nik SEP because version 2 does not run on my machine. Alas–though I’m still very happy with v1.

Canon T2i on par with the subject.

The Waldo Tunnel

Everyday during the commute I pass through the Waldo Tunnel (aka the “Rainbow Tunnel” because of it’s south side paint job) before and after I cross the Golden Gate Bridge. Here’s a long shot of the tunnel from the turnout at the north end of the bridge. (I took a couple of experimental shots of the tunnel with my G11 about this time last year.)
